    Is there a propper way to delete old origins?
    In all that years of using Nimbus a.k.a. NMS a.k.a. UIM a.k.a DX-IM UIM (or something like that), the amount of origins raised and lots of them are "useless".
    Esp, this is annoying in the UMP->AccountAdmin->Accounts->Ownership

    Is there a secure way to remove unused origins?

    A provision to delete an origin is lacking and the only way would be direct sql query.

    There is nothing available, best to open a support case.

    Hi Matthias,
    In the AccountAdmin portlet for each Account there is a trashcan icon which allows you to delete them.

    What else are you looking for?

    You can also go into the USM and go to bottom and in the "Inventory" type the name of the Origin you want to delete and then select all and DELETE. Include the "QoS Measurements" option.

    To clean up old Discovery_Agent Sources:

    select * from CM_DISCOVERY_AGENT order by hub


    --Find the da_id # in the table above and then enter it at the end of the line below to delete that discovery_agent

    exec P_CM_REMOVE_DISCOVERY_AGENT @da_id =65
